Quotes on How to Deal With Difficult People

Quotes on How to Deal With Difficult People

We all have to deal with difficult people from time to time. Perhaps it is a noisy neighbor or a bossy coworker. Fortunately, we can draw from the wisdom of the ages to help us gain inspiration. With this in mind, here are some quotes on how to deal with difficult people.

Dealing with negative criticism is the hardest. As Sydney B. Simon once wrote, “I defy anyone reading this book to tell me that she or he has ever felt in different, let alone uplifted, enriched, cheered up, or enhanced when put on the receiving end of a blast of criticism.”

Another of Mr. Simon’s quotes on how to deal with difficult people: “Thousands upon thousands of us [fail] to recognize that the knives of negative criticism which people stick in us are just as sharp and deadly as those made of steel and borne by assassins… our society has somehow conditioned us to accept the notion that criticism of all sorts is bound to be good for us. That it will make us more mature. That one of the marks of being a grown up woman or man is the ability to absorb all sorts of critical jabs, barbs, and thrusts. That the more it hurts the better for us.”

Mr. Simon is exactly right when he wrote this.

It’s true that many people refuse to listen to completely justified criticism. However, we are being drowned by the “self-help” ruse that we must listen to criticism because it is always say “gift” from people who care about us!

The people who are so quick to point out the importance of listening to constructive criticism forget the flipside; that other people can use negative and destructive criticism as a powerful weapon to break us down!

Jay Carter, author of the book “Nasty People” called such difficult people “invalidators.” He wrote: “It’s hard to recognize and invalidator, because a truly good one can bypass the scrutiny of your logical mind, and you find yourself feeling bad without knowing why…. the invalidator actually feels inferior to some other person, so he or she tries to make the other person feel small. Thus, the invalidator can control the victim.

George Zgourides defined the constant critic thusly: “This opponent is fond of pointing out your imperfections… everything you do is bad… and the criticizer feels compelled to tell you all about it, even if you don’t want to hear it.”

How To Get Help When You Are Lost in the Wilderness

How To Get Help When You Are Lost in the Wilderness

Have you ever heard of the situation in which a missing hiker get lost in the woods? In some cases, some people leave the trail and want to be alone with the thought that they can find the way back themselves, or a person wanders ahead of the group behind and then gets separated. A small kid might wander off in order to see something which he is interested, whilst other members of the group are not focusing on the child. Several reasons are available causing the lost the people in the wilderness.

 

So, before you go out on a hike, here are a couple things you should be sure to do:

 

leave your hiking plan and projected time of return with someone – a family member, a ranger at the trailhead, a friend. If you are not back by the designated time, someone will know to look for you and where to begin that search.
take with you on your hike certain survival essentials such as drinking water, trail mix, a compass, a small mirror for signaling, a cell phone fully charged, a whistle, bear spray, and even a personal alarm.

 

If you should happen to find yourself lost in the woods, the most important thing to do is keep your wits about you. Stay calm and focus on getting found. If you really have no idea which way to proceed, just take a break. Sit down, eat some trail mix, take a drink of water and think through what you need to do next.

 

Stay put, but look around you and see if you can determine which direction you came from, what landmarks you might have noticed. Don’t just strike out in any direction and hope for the best. You have the best chance of being found if you do not continue further into the wilderness.

 

If you have a compass, use it to determine your bearings. Look at your map and see if you can match any landmarks on the map with what you can see from where you are. This might be enough to get you back on track. If you think you know which way to go, proceed, but mark your trail with stacks of rocks or whatever you might find. This will help any searchers follow your track.

 

If you are not at all sure how to proceed, just stay put. Assess your food and water supply, try calling out on your cell phone, find a safe place to possibly spend the night if you have to, and use your whistle and personal alarm to signal help. A personal alarm is very shrill and loud and can reach distances further than a whistle might. But a personal alarm may either run out of air with the aerosol alarm or the battery might run down in the electronic alarm depending on how often you use it. Going back and forth between the whistle and alarm is a good plan. The whistle will always work and will especially help searchers locate you once they get within range.

 

Getting lost is a scary experience. But if you prepare ahead of time for the possibility, it will help you keep a calm demeanor in the event it actually happens. There is a lot of enjoyment and beauty to be found in the wilderness. Seek it out, but stay safe and always be prepared.

 

Skin Cancer News

Skin Cancer News

Everyone is at risk to develop skin cancer. Recent publication of new research has raised concern about those of us who spend a great deal of our time outside in the sun for fun or work. Dr. Darrell Rigel of New York University looked at a select group of adults with out door summer jobs three years in a row.

The staggering news was that we are 5 to 20 times more likely to develop melanoma, the deadliest skin cancer, with more and more time in the sun. They were able to identify six risk factors that led to greater sun exposure and greater risk of skin cancer. It is very simple. The more of these risk factors you have the greater the risk.

Risk factors that the study identified were:

1. An outdoor summer job.
2. History of blistering sunburn
3. Having naturally red or blond hair
4. Freckling of the upper back
5. Personal history of previous melanoma
6. History of actinic keratosis

The study participants were 18 to 70 years of age, a good sampling across a broad range. Having fair skin or a past history of two or more episodes of blistering sunburn confirm our previous understanding of how those innocent events lead to greater risk of skin cancer. Actinic keratosis is a form of sun damaged skin that can be a precancerous condition. The skin remembers or accumulates sun damage over a lifetime in many small installments. The average lifetime risk of developing a melanoma is relatively low at 1.5%.

Having even one of these risk factors increased the odds by more than twice to 3-5%. Dr Rigel’s study actually looked at over 40 risk factors but these six were the only ones that correlated closely with more frequent skin cancer. An interesting note is that age alone without a history of excessive sun exposure was not a risk factor. Editorial comments by Dr Rigel summarized that the real risks are simply “genetic susceptibility and exposure to ultraviolet light”.

These findings emphasize the need for preventive measures when spending time outdoors. Liberal and frequent use of sunscreens and appropriate clothing to minimize the damaging effects of excessive sun exposure is critical. In the future there may be other more sophisticated ways to decrease our susceptibility. For now basic common sense and consistent use of inexpensive tools like sunscreens and sun block can make the difference in a life free of skin cancer.

TaylorMade R9 460 and R9 460 TP drivers

TaylorMade R9 460 and R9 460 TP drivers

From Enjoymygolf(ClubTest, 2010)

TaylorMade R9 460 Driver 

Category: Game-Improvement Drivers
We tested: 9.5°, 10.5° with Aldila Reax 60 graphite shaft; 9.5°, 10.5° with Fujikura Motore F1 65 graphite shaft

Company line: “Flight Control Technology lets you change loft, face angle and lie for up to 40 yards of side-to-side trajectory variation. Our ‘Inverted Cone Technology’ offers max forgiveness on off-center hits. A deeper CG helps to launch shots high and long.”

OUR TESTERS SAY:
PROS: One of the top overall performers; the adjustable head makes TaylorMade R9 460 Driver  fun and easy to try to find a new, better ball flight; springy, energetic face, an efficient transfer of power into the ball every time; pretty consistent forgiveness; the less effort you put into it, the more it delivers; masks potential distance loss on heel or toe strikes; penetrating ball flight.

CONS: Tendency to overswing due to lightweight feel; Motore shaft might be too tip-stiff for “slower” swingers.

TaylorMade continues to lead the way in terms of adjustable drivers. In March 2009, it released the revolutionary R9 (430 cc) with eight clubface settings and removable weights (totaling 18 grams). The design allows you to alter directional ball flight up to 75 yards. Now comes the beefier (460 cc), more forgiving R9 460. It, too, offers eight clubface settings (up to 40 yards of left-to-right flight change) but no removable weights.

The TaylorMade R9 460 Driver launches shots, on average, 1-degree higher with 300 to 400 rpm less spin than R9. Its big, broad face features “inverted cone” technology to max out distance on misses. At $ 299, this stick is easier on the wallet than other adjustable-face angle drivers and is on par with the majority of fixed face angle drivers.

• Company testing reveals that shots struck one-inch off-center lose just 2 mph ball speed versus center hits. That’s the equivalent of four yards, based on 100 mph swing speed.

• Neutral (N) and Right (R) are two hosel settings (among eight total) that tweak face angle, loft and lie. Different settings can alter launch angle as much as 2-degrees and backspin up to 1,000 rpm.

TaylorMade R9 460 Driver targets those who prefer a simpler, easier-to-use big stick than the fully loaded R9 driver.

Adjust the Head. Adjust the Weights. Totally Optimize You.

 

Taylor Made Flight Control Technology (FCT)

Change the face angle, lie angle and loft to affect side-to-side flight by up to 40 yards – 8 different club head positions.

How to adjust the R9 – The R9 has a small metallic sleeve positioned over the tip of the shaft. The shaft is secured to the club head with a specially made bolt in the bottom of the club head. The FCT bolt is designed to be retained in the well to eliminate the chance of losing it. At the bottom of the sleeve is a ring of small, gear like teeth, which tightly mesh with a second ring of matching teeth within the hosel. You can change the club head’s characteristics (face angle, loft, lie) by loosening the FCT bolt, removing the shaft from the head, rotating the sleeve and shaft into a specified position, then locking them into that position within the head with the FCT bolt.

 

Movable Weight Technology (MWT)

The R9 includes one 16-gram & two 1-gram changeable weights. This allows you to change the clubs center of gravity location to affect side-to-side flight by up to 35 yards. Put the heavy weight in the heel port to promote a draw, in the toe port to promote a fade, and in the middle port to promote a straight flight

 

 

FCT + MWT

Total adjustability for maximum flight control; up to 75 yards of side-to-side adjustability. Various multiple settings are made possible by combining FCT with MWT: Eight club head positions made possible by FCT multiplied by three MWT configurations: 8 x 3 = 24. 24 drivers in 1 club.

Choosing among the Vending Machine Suppliers’ Programs

Choosing among the Vending Machine Suppliers’ Programs

In these times of economic recession, the vending machine business has provided various benefits to all customers from all walks of life as well as investors. For one, profit is constant and returns are instant. Another advantage is that maintenance is low and vending machine suppliers offer a range of packages to ensure ease of business. Before starting a vending machine business, you have to consider which type of product to sell as well as the most advantageous location. After considering such aspects, you can now choose which vending machine service to enroll in. The following are the aspects to look for when scouting the right program for you:

1) There are programs that offer either a franchise, a bought, or rented machine. Rented machines are always cheaper for your current budget but bring in lesser profit compared to when you buy your machine. Franchise deals are the most expensive, but you get to own the rights to the machine and products as you please. Consider your budget when making the choice of whether to rent or buy the machine.

2) Check the profit you derive from vending machine programs. Choose vending machine suppliers that give the highest commission. Factor in other costs as well. Example, if you run the vending business yourself, you will get all the profit but will have shell out more capital. However, if you let operators do all the dirty work, expect the profit to be minimal but without much investment from your end.

3) Find programs that provide you with technical and customer support that you need to start and run the business. This is especially important if you are new to the business. Some suppliers have programs that also do the analysis about which products would sell best in the area as well as offer you a wide array of options suited to your needs and location.

Top 5 Anais Nin Quotes

Top 5 Anais Nin Quotes

Anais Nin was born Angela Anais Juana Rosa Edelmira Nin y Culmell in February 1903, a French author that became famous for her journals that spanned 60 years, starting from the time she was 11. Anais Nin is also well known for her erotica. She has been hailed as one of the finest writers of female erotica. Anais was one of the first women to completely explore the realm of erotic writing and was the very first prominent woman in Europe to write erotica. Here are a few of the top Anais Nin quotes.

“Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.”

In this quote Anais is referring to the fact that life is an ever evolving journey. That to remain stagnant is to cease living… to die. There are some people that choose to remain in one state, such as the mourner that refuses to let go of the one they lost and let go of the grief. This can also happen with the person that chooses to focus on one happy event, may it be the award they won for a spelling bee, or a promotion that they received at work and they never move beyond that point, it becomes the focus of their life. You have to keep going through life actively, experience all that there is to experience in order to truly be alive.

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”

This is a quote that refers to the risk or chances one is willing to take in their life. If you are consumed by fear, say of flying, then you will never experience the feeling of seeing the world from above. The incredible images that you see when flying over a mountain, flying through the clouds, this thereby causes your life to shrink. The person that is afraid to swim in the ocean but takes advantage of a swim with the dolphins on a trip has expanded their life. You have to learn how to overcome fears and take advantage of the opportunities that are in front of you or you are simply missing out.

“I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.”

A woman is a female that is not afraid to take charge, to do for herself, who has the belief in herself that she can conquer and overcome whatever is in front of her. That she is just as able as the man that is in her life to do what needs to be done. A woman is a female that wants to be treated as an equal by her man, not coddled and wrapped in velvet.

“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.”

This quote is about perception, it explains why a group of people can be in the same room and theoretically experience the same event… see the same movie… hear the same speech and each person will walk away with a different perception of what actually happened. How many times have you driven down a road on your way home, the same road each time… and one day you finally noticed that old house up on the hill. If you are a negative person a day where the cloud is mostly blue, the sun is warm and the clouds are like white cotton buds… you are going to see that there are clouds in the sky.

“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It does of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of withering, of tarnishing. “

In other words love does not die on its own, as a person would from old age. Love cannot grow old. It does not self deplete. People use it, suck it all up and do not take the time to renew where they are getting that love, to return the love. People falsely assume that love will always be there not realizing that it like the flower needs nutrition and care.

I love the above quotes I hope you found the same enjoyment from them.

Factors to Consider Before Choosing Among the Vending Machine Suppliers

Factors to Consider Before Choosing Among the Vending Machine Suppliers

With life in the fast lane, many people have found a vending machine a practical solution to providing the needs of people twenty-four hours a day. This makes the business very profitable. However, to ensure the maximum outcomes of anyone wanting to invest in the vending machine business, a number of factors must be considered before choosing among the vending machine suppliers as follows:

1) Business area. The success of any business depends primarily on its location such that this is the first factor to consider. You have to choose which area best to situate your vending machine. It has to be an area of high traffic. Try to ask whether putting up a vending machine is possible in that area and whom to ask the permission to.

2) Product choice. After determining where to situate your vending machine, you have to determine which product will sell well in that area. It is good to make an assessment of which products the people would need. You can conduct a mini survey asking the people about product and brand preferences.

3) Competition and complementary. You also have to look at possible competition before making a choice on which among the vending machine suppliers to contact. Are there nearby stores selling your type of product? If so, how can you grab the attention of their customers? Today vending machines have several innovations to increase selling such as placing of revolving toys in the machine for kids. You also have to consider complementary businesses. A point in case is considering putting up of a machine which vends sandwiches which will complement beverage machines already present in the area.

The above factors should be part of any business plan. After considering such, you can decide on which supplier can provide what you need with consideration of the above factors.
